The unique and internationally celebrated atmosphere of The Frick Collection has as much to do with the decorative arts as with its iconic collection of old master paintings. As the sumptuous house Henry Clay Frick constructed at 70th Street took shape between 1912 and 1914, he recognized the need for furnishings of a calibre that matched his painting collection. Together with later acquisitions and gifts, Frick's purchases of enamels, clocks and watches, furniture, gilt bronzes, porcelain, ceramics, silver and textiles are the equals of the works on canvas and far exceed them in number.
Included here are carefully selected blocs of decorative arts - from stunning collections of Limoges enamels and Sèvres porcelain to French eighteenth-century furniture and an extraordinary collection of clocks and watches. Long overdue, this handbook - the first devoted to the decorative arts in the Frick's collection - provides a valuable introduction to this area.
Über den Autor: Charlotte Vignon is the Curator of Decorative Arts at The Frick Collection.
